  • Filmed and Not Forgotten

    4th August 2015 marks 101 years since Britain entered World War I. Our HLF project, Filmed and Not Forgotten, is now live on Google Cultural Institute: an exhibition of a small but important collection of films made in communities across Yorkshire just before, during or after the War. During the project, curator Martin Watts identified over 100 people that appear in the films, discovering some amazing and poignant stories.
